Them's fightin' words...

IDF issuing callup orders for reservists

The IDF began calling up reservists on Wednesday afternoon following Hizbullah attacks on IDF forces along the northern border.

Israel rejected a cease-fire request made by the Lebanese government, via the UN, after IDF troops entered its territory to rescue two soldiers captured by Hizbullah Wednesday morning.

A very high ranking military officer said that if the soldiers were not returned in good condition, Israel would turn Lebanon back 20 years by striking its vital infrastructure.

That reads to me like the old taunt, "I'm gonna kick your ass so bad your ancestors are gonna feel it."

And I don't doubt for even a moment that Israel could do it.
